All Yours (Je suis à toi). David Lambert. Belgium/Canada.
Shamefully overlooked by the mainstream film festival circuit as well as the LGBT ones, All Yours is Belgian filmmaker David Lambert’s bold and arresting follow-up to his well-regarded, more widely seen debut feature Beyond the Walls (Hors les murs), which premiered at Cannes back in 2012 and enjoyed a healthy festival run at gay fests across the globe. Perhaps due to a spoiler-y plot detail that arrives in the film’s third act, the gay festivals (in the U.S., at least) shied away from All Yours, and while lead actor Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (Glue) was rightfully awarded the Best Actor prize at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, All Yours didn’t see the mainline festival run it deserved following its premiere at Karlovy Vary.
Breaking Glass Pictures for your viewing pleasure; it currently doesn’t have distribution in the U.K. Outplay Films released Je suis à toi theatrically in France earlier this year.
